I see greed has set in here and totally screwedup a great site.No- I won't pay your damn fee.Get your advertising dollars from someone else. If you need money to stay working all you had to do was ask. Now I'll most likely get spam from this site like all the other pukes out there.

I really enjoyed this site......now it can rot in hell.

Anyone else feel this way? Speak up,this is America Damnit!

Since "This is America, Dammit!" maybe you should exercise your freedom of association and go to one of the sites run by somebody who shares your view of entitlements.

Dennis, I clicked on Dick Weeds profile and got the following:

"1 is an Unregistered User and Is Yet a Member of the CTB"


What am I missing here?

I deleted dickweed from our membership as his profile was distasteful, and I don't care to edit profiles. If dickweed would like to register again and play nice with the rest of us he is welcome.

 Registering on Tractorpoint

What I have discovered is that the vast majority of users of this site are unregistered visitors (Non Members).

This presents numerous problems, unregistered users demand site resources and rarely post value added content, that's just the way it is. Value added content can have the form of a question on tractor use, buying etc., or a response to such a question. In other words useful dialog, exchange, interaction ..... We have all seen the occasional visitor like dickweed who seeks to insult rather than consult.

Registration involves thinking up a Userid, and a password, and entering an email address, which we use for administration purposes only, and can be hidden from all TractorPoint members.

Registration allows me to track site usage and to offer subscription services like our "Premium Membership", a future optional subscription newsletter.

Not a big deal really.

Previously I allowed unregistered users to view message content up to 400 characters in length. Today I changed that policy.

As of today unregistered users can only see a "keyword abstract" of TractorPoint content up to 400 characters.

I would prefer to route unregistered users to a registration page instead but that presents other problems. Search engines are unregistered users and would bypass TractorPoint content if I did. But search engines "like" keywords so that is what has be left in the messages for unregistered users.

So if it is not too hard and you are unregistered, please take a moment to register.

In case anyone has the misconception that advertising reaps significant revenue, HELLO. Almost all forums are going to a membership subscription basis, I know its a switch and it may not feel right but I cannot operate the site without subscriptions.

Thanks to all that have upgraded to "premium" membership and because of our long term contributors TractorPoint is still a viable and great place to get information on Tractor purchases and use.

regards,
Dennis

It's worse than that Doc!

Dickweed wasn't sending TractorPoint any subscription fee.

Its amazing all the whining and hostility that was in his profile saying how awful it was for me to change the policy after he has been using the board for years, (probably copying content to another board) complaining about having to create a userid and a password, and that I was going to SPAM him.

Give me a break, anyone see a post before from dickweed....

It's the entitlement mentality at work.
